This highly customized kitchen was designed in such a way to make use of as much space as possible in an elegant and modern way. The combination of walnut veneer cabinets and buttermilk caesarstone countertops creates contrast in a subtle and eye catching way. The angled island adds dimension and intrigue to the design, as well as creates a solution for seating at the island.

For a hardworking room like the kitchen, a functional, modern style can be the perfect fit. With clean lines, sleek surfaces and an uncluttered look, modern kitchens invite you in to actually use the space. But that doesn’t mean they have to be lacking in warmth or personality — there are a number of ways to approach a modern look, from gleaming stainless steel finishes to natural woods. While you browse modern kitchen ideas, consider the sorts of colors and materials that will complement your space.

Few projects can transform your space like a kitchen remodel and finding inspiration to adding modern design aesthetics is easier than ever.

Layer on the Textures

If you’re looking for modern ideas for the kitchen, let the textures and materials you choose for the space guide the look. In a modern kitchen, surfaces and appliances are left unadorned, allowing sumptuous and striking materials and finishes to speak for themselves. Stainless steel, concrete, marble and wood can all be layered together. For a modern kitchen backsplash, you might consider going with a slab of quartz or marble. For more of a midcentury look, install a colorful tile backsplash. Your countertops are another great spot for making a statement. If you’re looking for modern kitchen island ideas, choose functional, multi-use pieces. To create a dual prep and eating zone, go with a long island that spans the length of the kitchen, complete with bar stools.

While you can opt for an all-white modern kitchen, with smooth laminate countertops and cabinets, you can also mix and match materials. To nail the look, install simple modern kitchen cabinets made of wood, and pair them with marble counters. And while wooden floors are always a classic choice, don’t overlook other materials. Practical and chic, concrete is a great modern kitchen flooring material.

Lighting and Color is Everything

When it comes to modern kitchen decor, don’t be afraid of using color. Especially if you’re decorating a Scandinavian or midcentury modern kitchen, playful pops of blue, yellow or red can bring a welcome contrast to white and gray finishes. Modern also doesn’t have to mean robotic. You can celebrate a more natural look with rich walnuts or light-colored woods and subtle green or blue accents.

While you browse modern kitchen design ideas, keep in mind that lighting plays a crucial role in minimalist kitchens. Flat surfaces, clean lines and sparse decoration do well in rooms with plenty of natural light. If you’re taking on a kitchen remodel, you may want to consider expanding your window space to let the light in. When night falls, the light fixtures you choose to illuminate your kitchen will also make a big difference. If you’re in need of modern kitchen lighting ideas, consider whether you prefer inconspicuous recessed lighting or bold pendant lights.

Sometimes you may want a bit more privacy, especially if you live in an urban apartment or similarly dense area. One of the most versatile modern kitchen curtain ideas is to simply install Roman shades. Go for white, black or a bold pattern, and you’re sure to enjoy the streamlined look.
